  1. Amazing how I find such treasures in these Suffrage Wagon News Notes. The president of the US, and what’s happening with women in India, and study notes for the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments, and so much more. It’s something I look forward to, though I sometimes pass over these collections and say I’ll be back again, and then I don’t. One good thing. The news notes are linked in the archives, I see, and I can go back and check into them. I like how you have the live link and then the PDF, because so often links are broken and this collection of news notes is perfect for someone like me, a researcher, and there isn’t a whole lot on the internet about the suffrage movement, on a regular basis, I mean.

  2. Thanks for these news notes. I don’t have the time to stay current with Twitter or Facebook and can always count on returning to Suffrage Wagon in my free time to bring myself up to date on what’s going on.

  3. Great information. I feel like I’ve been living in the dark! I had no idea that women played such a big part in history. It unfortunate that a lot of this information is never covered in school classes.

    Never would have believed I would have started being interested in the suffrage movement. My teachers never even mentioned it, and now I wonder why. It might have been an awesome thought to have so many women getting together to overturn a stupid system, though a lot of men sure liked it the way things were.
